He's still so great. Team LeBron would've lost without him on the floor in the 4th.

Saw on twitter he hadn't dunked in a RS game since 2015-16 He's really been in great shape it seems, the new diet must be helping something.

There was a time where I never thought I would see him in an all-star game again.

CP3 still has A TON left in the tank. Likely still a top 15 player.

He is at worst a top 3 PG still, only WB and Lillard are in the discussion. I think as crazy as it might sound I might take him over any other PG to win a Playoff series still.

Paul is still so good. 13th in the league in RPM. 17/7/5 averages while shooting on just under 61% TS and turning it over his typical 2 times per game. 6 ft PGs aren't supposed to be this good at almost 35. Really hope he can an opportunity to ring chase within the next few years.

He actually had poor first half, but dominated in the second. I love this team, can see them upseting all non-LA teams in playoffs.

They are really a player away from being good. Dort is fine but they need someone to take up those Ferguson and Nader minutes. If they had that they could really be a threat in the West.

He is still a great player. I've been impressed by his health this season. Only 1 game missed. Seems like he is in much better shape too

They're good, better than I'd even expected, but can't see them winning in the postseason with the cast after CP and Gallo. Adams is solid, but I don't really trust anyone else on the wing at all. They're still sub .500 vs teams .500 or better, but they just aren't losing to bad teams really ever.

Unrelated to CP3, but Dort's already a better player than Ferguson IMO. Ferg just isn't an NBA caliber player.

He is one of the best lockdown single possession defenders I've seen. I don't know how many times I've seen a player killing his team throughout the game and then he decides (a 6'0 PG mind you) to guard him. And then he slows them down.

The key is he's extremely aggressive and the refs let him get away with contact because he's so small. Too bad he's too old to play like that consistently anymore.

Does it once again. First he and Schroeder trap Kemba and Schroeder gets the steal and then he locks up Tatum on the last potential gamewinner.

Like I've said for years.

The guy is better than Westbrook. He's proving it this year. Shouldn't even be a discussion anymore.
I miss him A LOT in Clipper Land and wish there was some way he was still leading this team.
Clever reactions to aggressive situations

It really annoys me that Doc the GM basically torpedoed Paul's chances of winning a title and then got bailed out by an elite front office giving him a team that is going to get him another ring.
